Where the aga shines is its air circulation within the mask to prevent fog buildup. This is not an issue until you get to the mid-50s and below. The aga does not fog up in colder temperatures

and comfortable fir. The Neptune equalization system in my opinion is superior to the rubber nose blocks used in the aga for equalization

The real beauty of the neptune masks is their nose equalization system. You can you adjust the nose plugs for an effective

You really have to wash the space mask with soap and warm water after a day of shore diving (which you should do anyway). The Neptune Nira feels a bit more durable than the Space with it´s long portruding nose. For what it´s worth, the Nira just looks cooler to me. But that portruding reg can get in the way as if you need to look at something on your belt...you may find your view blocked.

To answer your question, I have a couple of Neptune Niras and a Neptune Space Mask. The Space is the newer type design with the smaller less portruding regulator than the Nira. The space also feels lighter and my personal opinion is that it breathes a little easier than the Nira. My only negative with the Space mask, as I am primarily a shore diver...my experience is that the regulator seems much more prone to leaks due to sand

Been collecting FFMs for a very long time. Most people are into the Ocean Reefs or the Agas of which I have a few of each. The pros lean more towards the agas while the rec crowd tends more towards the Ocean reef. But the think the most important factor is how it fits your particular face. Definitely try before you buy if you can. But if you´re doing real cold waterdiving (less than 50 degrees) I´d go with an aga. I prefer my Ocean Reefs for my temperate to warm water dives. Hope that helps. BT

Hi Deon, I was just at Haigh a couple of weekends ago. I posted a couple of pix from Bora Bora, I plan on going to Roatan Honduras next summer. Let me know what you think of the pix...SCUBA_Fish
